Track Name: 10 O'Clock
I've come to terms with the fact that
This game is shit
I pull, but you pull way harder
I'm done with it
Here is the fact of the matter
All you do is moan
The secret to getting older
Is to work alone

They try to tell me off but I sure don't listen
I'm doing all that I can but I only just function
Your two cents are worth so much less than that
Your fast talking back tracking bullshit
Can mine barely match

They stand for all of the things that I really hate
The pretentious boy with his whiskey
And nothing to create
So tell me all of your problems, No guarentees
You dug this pit that you live in
Don't cry to me
You manufacture your problems, do you get a thrill
I place my sorrows in bottles, yours leave with pills

They try to tell me off but I sure don't listen
I'm doing all that I can but I only just function
Your two cents are worth so much less than that
Your fast talking back tracking bullshit
Can mine barely match

Reality slips, but I don't fall
Memories fade on the floor you crawl
Mouths move but I can't hear sound
My confidence is buried in the shaking ground
Cold hands flutter with a lack of drive, must keep moving if I want to survive
All of my thoughts sharpen in the quiet alone
There's a place I miss but it isn't home

These people they are all the same
the only things they say come from the way they were raised
If talk is cheap, then it's lucky I'm poor
But at least I've got something to live for
I cuss too much and I drink the same
Why do you care it's what keeps me sane
I try too hard and I care too much
All my efforts get me is a friendly slut
Track Name: Hot Mess
Watch that girl, Her smart mouth
She'll get up And leave town
A facade of true love
When she's down and out of luck

She can pry with her cold eyes
Spins a web of tangled lies
Watch your back and bite your tongue
It's only over when she's done, done, done

I know that she's a mess, don't know what happened there
All I know is that I love her and she's got me ensnared
They say that you can't pick who you love and it's true
And with every day that passes I just get more confused
She picks me back up just to throw me aside
But when midnight strikes the clock she really knows how to ride

I want to tell you off
But your pretty little smile makes my brain go soft
I'm a phone call away when you're sad and blue
I'm just a sad little girl when it comes to you

Watch that girl, her smart mouth
She'll get up and leave town
A facade of true love
When she's down and out of luck
Track Name: It's Not Me, It's You
I made this bed, still I cannot sleep
I count mistakes instead of counting sheep
Can't decide where we lost our way

Your new girl, bet she talks real sweet
But she'll never know the real story
My smile grows wide when I see your pain

If actions speak louder than words then yours scream
Finally know you never cared about me
You took all I had and made it yours
But everyone knows you're an attention whore
So just get out, take your bullshit with
The last thing I need is another bitch

Lock me up throw away the key
Oh what the hell did you do to me
Call me cold, but I feel so warm
Guess I've gone soft, my heart transformed
Admit it, I created you
You're just a product of what I can do
All of your thoughts, your fears, your politics
Have my fucking name written over it
Take these words say them like a prayer
As you scratch your way out of cold despair
Watch your back as you walk away, you tell me wait for you, but I'd rather play


If actions speak louder than words then yours scream
Finally know you never cared about me
You took all I had and made it yours
But everyone knows you're an attention whore
So just get out, take your bullshit with
The last thing I need is another bitch
I'll see you in hell

Lock me up throw away the key
Oh what the hell did you do to me
Call me cold, but I feel so warm
Guess I've gone soft, my heart transformed
Admit it, I created you
You're just a product of what I can do
All of your thoughts, your fears, your politics
Have my fucking name written over it
Take these words say them like a prayer
As you scratch your way out of cold despair
Watch your back as you walk away, you tell me wait for you, but I'd rather play

Most people fuck you over, then just fade away
But what can you do besides just move on
I learned it the hard way, but what do I care
Isn't that shit supposed to make you strong
Though my outlook on life has gotten pretty dark
I'll use you and bail before I get too deep
But don't take offense when I tell you straight up
it's a problem with you, not a problem with me
Track Name: Locomotion
The capital of this state of affairs is the word derailed
The tracks are narrow, stakes are high you drive without care

Dirty windows look out across a wall of trees
Just keep chugging along
Pull the gravel out of your knees

The arbitrary nature of this romance is shown in clouds of smoke
The choices few just freight and coal an expiration
Just a joke

Lets get shallow, a narcissistic dream
Move too quickly along, I'll say some things that I don't mean

I tried so hard to make this work but I guess that I didn't know
The only one you'll ever love is in the mirror when you're alone

But you pull my heart strings as I try to to gasp for air
Beg you quietly but your cold eyes don't care

Conducted me down the wrong path
Smeared me all across the train tracks
This is wrong
Track Name: Tina Needs a Girlfriend
I could write a song about all the ways that I doubt every word you say
I could write a song about it
But you won't even hear it

I could tell all of my friends all about
The hell that were your tantrums
Or better yet, I could tell them your deepest darkest secrets

I'll be better off being on my own
Than being in your arms but feeling so alone
Should've listened to my brain but my heart was too loud
Usually know better but I let myself down
So just go
Oh please just go

I could write a song that's all about
how you were the biggest let down
What's the fun
In loving someone that's zipped inside their baggage

I could cry about the fact that everyone word was a lie
But really fuck that
You must be exhausted from living like you're the only one alive

I'll be better off being on my own
Than being in your arms but feeling so alone
Should've listened to my brain but my heart was too loud
Usually know better but I let myself down
So just go
Oh please just go

I always kept you so close
Even when it was I that needed you the most
I tried to show you some light because you only see dark
Your love was like a black eye it really left a mark
So you stay there, guess I see the door now
Knew I should, guess I didn't know how
Hope my feet take me in a better direction
Hope I made it onto the path to perfection
Why can't you be
The boy I thought you were
Why can't you see
That I felt so sure

I'll be better off being on my own
Than being in your arms but feeling so alone
Should've listened to my brain but my heart was too loud
Usually know better but I let myself down
So just go
Oh please just go
